San Diego Trip Days 1 and 2

The last week of May, Matt and I were able to take a trip to San Diego just the two of us!  Last year, Matt won an award at work that is given to the top 1% of employees based on performance.  Part of that award is an all expenses paid trip (with a couple hundred of your closest friends aka: other employees from all over the world who also won the award and their guests).  Well, the trip last year was occurring when Harper was about 3 months old; needless to say (I hope), a week away from a 3 month old (especially when you’re nursing) is just not feasible.  Thankfully, Matt was able to defer a year so we were able to take the trip this year instead.  I am so glad we did – Harper was old enough that I didn’t worry as much, so I was able to enjoy myself – and the trip was to San Diego this year, staying at the Hotel Del Coronado!  We were there Tuesday through Saturday and had excursions each day, along with cocktail hours and dinner each night (all provided by Matt’s work!).  Everything was truly top notch – from the moment we got off the shuttle from the airport we were offered Arnold Palmers or lemonade in mason jar glasses and fresh (still warm!) coconut macaroons…





We were already missing the girls, but the view from our room made it up for it just a tad… Winking smile 


Our first night there we had a welcome dinner on the beach and some downtime to just explore the hotel grounds.  It is such a gorgeous hotel – built in 1880 – so much history!



Unfortunately, Hadley left me with a little parting gift in the form of a virus, so I was running a fever our first night and had to call it a night pretty early.  Thankfully, our second day there, I had nothing planned until a massage at 1p so I was able to sleep it off while Matt golfed Torrey Pines.


Our second night (Wednesday) was the awards dinner at the resort.  The company brought in their own traveling Blow Dry Bar and set it up just like the regular salon inside the hotel.  I had an appointment there after my massage and it was so nice to have my hair done for the dinner rather than having to get ready myself!  :)


The company had photographers at each event – our photo at the awards dinner felt like prom night ;)


Below is a picture of Matt receiving his award…



On our third day we went to the San Diego Zoo and I have so many more pictures I think I’ll have to save the rest for another post! 

Pin It!
